Video: Obama Takes Oath of Office; Justice Roberts Makes an Error


Barack Obama takes the oath

Click for the Official Inaugural Photo Book.

If you noticed the slight mistake while Barack Obama took the oath of office as administered by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, it was caused by Roberts' flub:

Chief Justice John Roberts is a man who has made very few public missteps in his life -- but he appears to have made one when swearing in Barack Obama. Roberts slightly flubbed the oath, which then tripped up Obama.

The oath is contained in the Constitution: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

But when Roberts swore in Obama, he flipped some of the words, saying: "I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully."

I JUST WATCHED WGNTV OUT OF CHICAGO THAT WE HAPPEN TO GET IN SOUTH FLORIDA! THEY STATED THAT IT WAS OBAMA THAT MADE THE ERROR AND THEN SHOWED CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS SWEARING IN BARACK OBAMA ONCE AGAIN IN THE MAP ROOM, LOCATED IN THE BASEMENT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!

CHICAGO IS REALLY SO NEGATIVE THAT THEY EVEN HAVE TO GO AGAINST WHAT IS THE TRUTH TO MAKE ITS NEW PRESIDENT OUT TO BE AN IDIOT!

OBAMA, PREVIOUSLY A PROFESSOR OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO FOR OVER TEN YEARS...KNOWS THAT OATH BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS AND IF HE DIDN'T HE WOULD HAVE PREPARED HIMSELF SO THAT HE WOULDN'T HAVE MADE AN ERROR!

ON THE OTHER HAND, CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS PROBABLY ONLY LOOKED AT IT JUST RECENTLY AND DID NOT GET IT RIGHT!!!

STOP THE NEGATIVITY PEOPLE!!!
THANKS TO THIS WEBSITE, I WILL GO TO WGNTV.COM AND CORRECT THEM!
